More than any other image taken by humanity, the Hubble Deep Field shows us, at a glance, what our place is in the universe.

This is wonderful. I had never actually heard of the 'Deep Field' image before, and I still wonder how the spacecraft could have hovered 'still' for eleven days, but the video was informative and interesting.
The depths to which Hubble was able to photograph into space, however, is pretty amazing in itself.
